There is a man.

He knows so many things about you.

Intimate things.

He knows what your pajamas look like. He's familiar with the way mascara collects in the lines under your eyes. He sees your bathroom trash before you empty it, and he knows how much time you spend in that room. He probably even knows which book you bring in there with you.

He sees your underwear—the granny panties with the worn-out seams restitched by hand—drying on the laundry rack. He sees you before you brush your teeth. He sees your morning hair.

He knows things about you that the man you are dating does not. He is not the man you are dating. He is the man your roommate is dating.


Dedicated to some special men I've known. Awwwwwww.

Haha, he might not have even seen it! I did send it to another former roommate and her boyfriend.
